- Social innovators such as Katia Ferrar, an Adelaide academic who plans to open a pro bono, student-led physiotherapy and podiatry clinic for homeless people.

On 24 November, musicians, medical researchers, athletes and even a fashion anthropologist were also named 2016 AMP Tomorrow Makers.
Once again, our recipients represented a wide range of ages—the youngest being 12-year-old Hamish Finlayson, a Townsville student who is developing an app to educate young people about autism, and 74-year-old Helen L’Orange, who wants to help elderly Australians to stay connected with the community.
